Acknowledge your fear(s) – Starting your own business is scary. These days, almost everyone needs some kind of job to pay the bills. And starting your own business with no guaranteed pay check can be scary, especially if you have a family to support. But you can’t let your fear keep you from trying. Instead, to combat fear, educate yourself.

First of all, a cheat sheet is nothing more than that.a list of tasks for a particular project. The list in itself is not detailed. It’s just a list. But each item on the list should be described in such a manner as to leave no doubt in your mind what has to be done. For each person, that’s going to be different. For example, for one of my tasks, my cheat sheet says “Write articles for Ezine articles.” Now, I know what that means. I don’t have to have a big long explanation as to what the involves. But some people might have it broken down further into, “Write articles on acne, warts, moles and cold sores.” That way they know exactly what articles they’re writing.
The second is in regards to interruptions. I have found it absolutely amazing that family and friends seem to think that just because you stay a home during the day that you have nothing else to do. When I first started working at home I was surprised at the many requests my family and friends had of my time. My best advice, which was given to me by another home business worker, is, ‘If they are not on fire or if they are not bleeding they do not need your attention.” Now don’t take the statement literally but what it basically means is, unless it is a real emergency do not let your family and friends interrupt your work schedule.
What is your hobby? Do you love cooking or photography? You may want to consider starting your own catering or photography business. Both offer a fun and enjoyable way to earn great money.
Development concepts not only have to be studied, they have to be applied. You have to have your own paradigm shifts and be a student of these concepts. A lot of these books and courses can be found on the internet and it’s important to know that it takes time and trial and error. You are not going to be able to change over-night but every investment you make in your education and yourself is going to pay off HUGE in the whole scheme of things.
Education. Regardless of your age, extra education and training are needed either for a career switch or self-improvement. A lot of people are taking college courses (even with teenagers) or upgrading to an MBA to climb the corporate ladder. Even if college education is out for you, you still have to plan for your children’s college degree, unless you intend to leave them to their own devices.
